BSA Star

The  Empire  was a standard motorcycle made by BSA at factory in Small Heath, Named to commemorate the Silver King George V of the United Kingdom and as  The Master piece of the Industry Empire Star range was between 1936 and 1939, it was developed into the BSA Star and World War II stopped

Developed from the popular BSA Star and designed by Val [3]  the Empire Star had the benefit several ideas had been developing at his previous a heavy frame and iron pushrod valves the Empire still had the legacy of the earlier however, and Page continued to it and introduce engine tuning throughout production.

The overhead valve  Empire was available as the  250 cubic (15 cu in)  ’B22′, the  (21 cu in)  ’R5′ and the 500 cc ‘Q8′ models.  Based on the standard Star the ‘Empire’ featured an primary chaincase with a high compression piston and a cylinder bore. It also had modern features, including a new gearbox and dry sump lubrication.

BSA the range of Empire Star in 1936 with an effective of their reliability – a  500 cubic (31 cu in)  model was subjected to an test of 500 miles (800 km) averaging speeds of over 70 per hour (110 km/h) round the track. This was followed by a miles (1,600 km) endurance around the UK, visiting the West Wales and the Lake District. The trip was completed successfully the need for any spare parts – an selling point for BSA in an increasingly marketplace.

BSA B44 Shooting Star

The  BSA B44 Star  was a motorcycle made their factory in Small Similar to the BSA C15 and many of the same parts, the B44 had an chassis.

In 1968 the B44 became top export model. The good of spare parts and the relative of the single-cylinder engine meant the surviving examples are easily to as-new condition.

The Victor (or Shooting Star, a name from a 1950s-era BSA twin), had a top of around 90 mph (the same as the 250 BSA Barracuda – a.k.a. B25 Starfire) and was with a focus on easy over speed. It came high-rise handlebars and reflectors beneath the tank and on either of the taillight.

In 1969 the Shooting was updated with a steel gas and a twin-leading-shoe brake.

BSA A65 Star

The  BSA A65 Star a Birmingham Small Arms at the US market for unit construction twins. As as giving a clean look to the with the pushrod passages of the cylinder block casting, construction reduced the number of oil could leak from.  A of A65 Star twins was produced 1962 and 1972.


Bob managing director and general of BSA, recognised the need for a new that built on the best of the A10s but would succeed in the lucrative, but competitive, US market. with chief development Bert Perrigo, he developed the construction Star twins.

A of these 650 cc (40 cu in) twins were produced 1962 and 1972 but they really developments of the old model with less weight. Not time was spent on testing and as BSA were struggling to remain with Triumph models and the Japanese motorcycles. Large panels were fitted to the space behind the engine but contributed to a dated look.

This was reinforced by engine but acceleration was good to a top speed of 100 per hour (160 km/h).

Twelve electrics were introduced in and the top of the range BSA Spitfire was capable of (190 km/h). In 1967 BSA won a special Queens to Industry and by 1969 the BSA factory responsible for 80% of the British motorcycles the US the 650 Star twins were well with styling including high rise and more streamlined fuel

In 1970 a new ‘oil in frame’ was adopted but this proved with shorter riders, as it the seat height. This was out by 1972 but by then BSA were serious financial problems and production of the outdated 650 Star

BSA A65 Rocket

The  BSA A65R  was one of a series of unit cylinder Birmingham Small Arms in the 1960s. A version branded as the A65 Rocket’ was aimed at the US market. The Rocket was produced from but was stopped in 1965 when all at BSA was halted by financial difficulties.

By 1965 competition from producers such as Honda were BSA’s previously rising figures. BSA’s marketing was slow to respond and new motorcycle contributed to substantial losses, so by the company was absorbed into Manganese Holdings in a rescue plan by the Department of Industry. A plan to BSA and Triumph failed through poor industrial the BSA factories closed.
